Does A Yeast Infection Have A Fishy Smell?

August 12, 2019

Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath with another
frequently asked question regarding yeast infection. Does a yeast infection have a fishy smell? Not really. You shouldn’t have a fish briny
sort of vaginal sort of smell with a yeast infection. A yeast infection smell is more
of a musty sort of smell. It can be a cheesy discharge and a lot of itch. When I think of a fish smell, I’m thinking
more about bacterial vaginosis, which tends to have a different type of watery, profuse,
gray sort of discharge with that fish brine smell. So you should not really have a fishy
smell with a Candida infection. But you can have a strong odor, though, which may be misconstrued
as a fish smell, but not really. So I hope that answers your question. My book explains quite a lot about this whole
thing, and in Chapter 3, you can read about the diagnosing, testing, and identifying of
yeast infections. There’s a whole section on the different types of vaginal afflictions,
including inflammations and conditions affecting the vagina. You can read all about those,
Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Herpes, Candida, Bacterial Vaginosis, and I explain all the signs and
symptoms, what you’re likely to experience, if there’s any discharge, the odor, what kind
of itch you’re likely to get, it’s all in the book. So you can read a lot more about
that in Candida Crusher. Hope that answers your question. Thank you.
